The Pioneer had a much greater range than the DASH—it could be flown up to 110 miles from the Iowa and stay in the air for up to 8 hours. But it also had some of the same shortcomings experienced with the DASH—including the difficulty of keeping track of where the damn thing was. One of the reasons the Turks were concerned about testing of the Pioneer aboard Iowa was its extremely low radar profile, despite radar reflectors that were applied to it to boost its return. It also lacked the sophisticated avionics of more recent drones, other than its 75-pound electro-optic and infrared sensor package. The first versions we tested only had a compass, a basic altimeter, and a pitot-tube airspeed sensor to guide them. … [Read more...] about The battleship, the drone, and the chocolate chip cookies
8:45 a.m. Secretary of Defense backs firing of Bay Area Navy Captain: U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper on Sunday defended the firing of U.S. Navy Capt. Brett Crozier, saying it was a “chain of command” issue focused on the “trust and confidence in the captain of the ship.” Crozier, a Santa Rosa native, was relieved from his command last week after sending a letter to Navy officials pleading for help and warning of the dire situation on board. At the time, more than 100 sailors aboard his nuclear aircraft carrier, the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt, were infected with the coronavirus, which docked in Guam following an outbreak among the crew of more than 4,000. Esper said the decision to fire Crozier ultimately rested with Navy Secretary Thomas Modly. “He came and briefed me the night before,” Esper told ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos Sunday. “The morning of, he sat down and talked to me. I listened to the recommendations of the CNO, the chief … [Read more...] about Coronavirus live updates: Number of SF inmates down by nearly half
